obama renominated him this week. >> he's helped protect americans from predatory lenders, launched a campaign to help families make smart decisions about college and cracked down on credit card companies that charged hidden fees. >> the last year, 45 republicans said in a letter, they would never vote for anyone to head that bureau and republican senator mike crapo says until key structural changes are made to the bureau to ensure accountability and transparency, i will continue my objepposition to any nominee for director. not all of his nominees are encountering such opposition, senator john kerry received bipartisan support at his confirmation hearing on thursday. >> the airplane, the one that says on the side, united states of america, lands anywhere in the world, i will be proud that it will be john kerry representing us. >> should he be confirmed, i'm confident he will be, and become our next secretary of state. i'm sure we'll have our disagreements which i know neither one of us will hesitate to bring to the other's attention. >> ever since key new york democratic senator ch

at least 200 additional. a federal appeals court struck down president obama's recess appointment of 3 commissioners to the national relations board. one senator is publicly calling the federal commissioners to resign and the rulings they made to be invalidated. a republican from nebraska is here now. senator, thank you for your time today. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> what do you make of this ruling, basically saying, the three folks that the president appointmented to the board, it was unconstitutional, they were no good? >> it's the right ruling. the court of appeals looked at what the president did and said, look, youacked unconstitutionally. you can't declare when congress is going to be in recess, which is exactly what president obama tried to do. so they said, not only are the members unconstitutionally, but the action that they took is also illegal and unconstitutional. and they voided that. so the presidentee got a mess on his hands. these members who are still up there, there are two still up there, in my judgment, need to step down and step down now. >> are you call

in session. the court found 3 to 0 that obama violated article two of the constitution. >> both republicans and democrats have done these type of recessed appointments. it goes down to what is a definition of a recess. if you go back to the constitution and that's what the judges did. they said 80 years after the constitution was ratified no president did a recess appointment like obama did. these guys that were appointed no good. >> in fact the chief judge was especially critical of president obama saying that he was giving himself, and i will quote here, free reign to appoint his desired nominees any time he pleases whether that time be a weekend or lunch or even when the senate is in session and he is merely displeased with its interaction. this cannot be the law. well, bob, if this were the law the president would then have unchecked unfettered discretion and ability to name anybody to any post at any time whenever he wants. wouldn't that render the constitution advise and consent clause meaningless? >> well that's what republicans are saying this is a victory for the separation of powe

the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker

some wondering if it is subtle endorsement of mrs. clinton to be mr. obama's successor. lawmakers were hoping that secretary clinton's testimony on the benghazi attacks would have provided hard evidence of how the tragedy happened. i sat down yesterday with senator john mccain and had a chance to question mrs. clinton. why didn't they push harder for more follow ups on important issues like what early warning measures were in place to address the security threat in the consulate? >> first of all, uma, you have a grand total of five minutes . i say this with some respect and little admireration. secretary clinton had been before the committees and long answers, they find more useful than short answers. i wanted to say that her answers were unsatisfactory and state many of the questions that were not answered and in hopes at leastt one of them i would get a satisfactory answer. i had to lay out our dissatisfaction with what she had said with not addressing the threats and the fact that a security group requesting to stay and felt they had to stay was with drown and on august 15t or 16th
